The New England Revolution have officially acquried Jerry Bengtson, but they have done so by making him the second Designated Player in the club's history.
The 25-year-old Bengtson was officially introduced as a member of the Revolution on Thursday morning, having agreed to a deal with New England that will see him play alongside fellow DP Shalrie Joseph, Benny Feilhaber and Saer Sene.
The Honduran international was acquired on an undisclosed transfer from CD Motagua. He will wear the No. 27 jersey for the Revolution.
As per club and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Here are more notes from around MLS:
MORGAN SIGNS LONG-TERM DEAL WITH TFC
Ashtone Morgan will be a member of Toronto FC for the considerable future after agreeing to a new long-term deal with the club on Thursday. The 21-year-old defender and Canadian international is in his second season with Toronto FC and has made 15 appearances while adding three assists this year. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
ARNAUD UPSET WITH PENALTY KICK CALLS
The Montreal Impact relinquished a lead en route to losing 3-1 to Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday, but being whistled for two penalty kicks in the process has not sat well with Davy Arnuad. The Impact captain touched on the pair of spot kicks that were awarded to Sporting KC in the second half of the match played at Stade Saputo, saying there's something wrong if a penalty kick is going to be given every time there is a battle in the 18-yard box. Arnaud also added that it should be the players who decide the outcome of games.
What do you think of Bengtson being signed as a Designated Player by the Revolution? Like TFC's move to sign Morgan on a long-term deal? Think Arnaud has a point, or where the two penalty kicks legit?
